Living in a hot & humid country like Singapore, you are not alone if you are constantly struggling with dry, damaged or frizzy hair. But, with so many anti-frizz hair treatments out there, how would you know which smoothing hair treatment works for you? Read on to find out more.
While all smoothing hair treatments promise to eliminate frizz and enhance manageability, they each have their characteristics, benefits and functions. #nothingisperfect
To help you cut through the clutter, we have broken down the most commonly found hair treatments:
Brazilian Blowout Sealant
Hair Botox and Fillers
Based on the following characteristics & your needs:
Hair Quality – What Are Your Major Hair Concerns?
“I thought all hair treatments would be beneficial and more or less the same. But, I have tried countless, and many didn’t help me at all!” Catherine Phuah, customer

Let us put it out there. There isn’t a single hair treatment that can fit all hair types or satisfy every customer’s needs. Period!
That’s because each hair treatment uses a different technology and active ingredients in varying concentrations. Hence, they will definitely have their strengths and weaknesses.
It is important to choose the correct anti-frizz or smoothing hair treatment based on your hair type and quality.
Foundation Sugar Hair Lamination:
Suitable for hair that is:
Requires monthly treatment to maintain its quality
Curl Reduction – How Straight Do You Want Your Hair to Be After the Hair Treatment?
“I love my curls and waves – I just wish it’s more tame, manageable and less frizzy. Before I came to Chez Vous Hair Salon, I was so sad that many salons tend to recommend Keratin Treatments or Rebonding. But these will straighten my curls and waves considerably.” Cheryl Swarlez, customer

There is nothing terrible about curls and waves. Neither is there anything wrong with liking straight hair. It all depends on your preference. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Every anti-frizz or smoothing hair treatment has different curl reduction intensity.
On the one hand, if you would like to have your curls and waves 100% intact, go with Foundation Sugar Hair Lamination.
On the other hand, opt for Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination if you would like to reduce your curls and waves by 50% for greater manageability, while retaining the hair’s movement and airiness.

However, for guests who just want their hair to be neat and smooth without it looking like you deliberately straightened them, Supreme Sugar Hair Lamination will be a great option.

Note: The straighter the result, the higher the anti-frizz properties and vice versa.
Compatibility with Other Hair Services – Will You be Perming, Rebonding or Colouring Your Hair?
“Wow, for the first time ever, I can now dye (without bleach) and smoothen my hair on the same day – without causing any major fading!” Jolline Lim, Customer

Most anti-frizz and smoothing hair treatments use heat to seal the ingredients into the hair. When heat is involved, it will cause hair dyes to fade.
However, some anti-frizz and smoothing hair treatments cause colour to “bleed” more than others. Hence, customers will not be able to dye and treat their hair on the same day.
Also, some anti-frizz and smoothing hair treatments are incompatible with future perm and rebonding services. As, perming or rebonding hair that has been treated with certain ingredients might cause our precious tress to break!
For customers who might be thinking of perming or rebonding their hair, avoid Brazilian Blowout Sealant, Keratin Treatments and Hair Botox and Fillers therapy. Instead, opt for Foundation, Advanced or Supreme Sugar Hair Lamination.
Longevity – How Long Do You Want the Hair Treatment to Last?
The benefits of hair treatment will fade upon each wash over time. Our hair has a pH level of 4.5 to 5.5. When it touches water – pH 7 – the cuticles will swell, causing “nutrients” to “leak” out.
Also, hair treatments do not break the bonds to permanently straighten them, unlike relaxers and Rebonding.
*With proper homecare and maintenance
*Depending on the severity of damage
Does it mean we can judge a hair treatment’s efficacy based on its longevity? No, we can’t. Ultimately, it also depends on:
Your hair type, texture & concerns;
Desired curl reduction and level of straightness; and
Compatibility with other hair services you might require
And lastly, cost!
Trivial: In general, the higher the curl reduction intensity, the more lasting the treatment will be.
Cost - What's Your Budget like?
“Hair Botox & Fillers, not going to lie, has a steeper price than most hair treatments available. But, it’s also a treatment that truly stands out from the rest - thanks to the state-of-art ingredients used.” Zile Chua, Beauty Editor at Daily Vanity, Singapore’s #1 online beauty site
